The test organism is grown overnight on an agar medium. The growth is then suspended in phosphate buffer and diluted to desired cell concentration. One ml of the cell suspension is added to 99 ml of the formulation and mixed well. After the contact time of 1 minute, an aliquot is removed and transferred to a tube of medium containing neutralizer capable of halting the antimicrobial activity. The bacteria in the neutralizing tube are enumerated by serial dilution in microwell plates. The bacterial reduction is computed, relative to an unchallenged control culture.


  • Kills 99.99% of most common germs that cause illness in as little as 15 seconds
  • No soap or water required
  • Does not contain alcohol

Based on the BVDV and Vaccinia virus expertise (according RKI / DVV] the formulation ID-50 can be declared as having “limited virucidal” properties according to a recommendation of an expert committee of Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Germany (Bundesgesundheitsblatt 2004,47:62-66) and is thus able to inactivate all enveloped viruses.

The following concentration and exposure time are necessary for inactivation of the two test viruses:

1.0% 5 minutes

Therefore, after successful experiments with the two above mentioned enveloped viruses the formulation ID-50 is also effective against so-called blood-borne viruses including HBV, HCV and HIV
